According to Geekbench, the Pocophone F1 reaches 2451 points in the single-core load. If more processor cores are added, the cell phone ends up with a score of 8998. Impressive, but not earth-shattering. For comparison, the OnePlus 6 scores 2436 points (15 less) in the single-core ranking and can point to 9069 points in the multi-core rating (71 more). In everyday use, however, the small difference should be felt, if at all, only minimally. Both smartphones are more than powerful with their Snapdragon 845 and 8GB of memory.
